Windy Standard Wind Farm

Repowering

We have applied to the Scottish Government for permission to repower Windy Standard 1 Wind Farm.

If approved, the plans will bring forward innovative partnerships which will create jobs in Dumfries and Galloway, making a substantial contribution towards net zero targets and help to support the circular economy.

The plans would see the removal of 36 turbines and eight wind turbines up to 200m to tip erected in their place. We have been working closely with the local community to develop its proposals since early 2021 and the feedback gathered has helped to shape the final plans and the associated local partnerships.

Windy Standard 1 Wind Farm was one of the first to be built in Scotland in the 1990s. We are committed to continuing this innovative legacy by ensuring that the project remains focused on delivering economic and social benefit in Dumfries and Galloway, in addition to addressing the industry-wise issue of wind turbine blade recycling.
